A Great Philosophical Walkthrough
This title is a thorough examination of development of philosophical thought through the last 2000 years. While these programs can never cover the totality of philosophy, this one does a great job in explaining the main points. This is achieved by Charleston Heston guiding us through philosophical thought developed by different historical personalities (Giants of Philosophy).
This is a great title that should be on the radar of anyone who is trying to learn more about philosophy and the development of human thought.
